The Solar Wind of Comet SWAN

My latest painting, hung as diptych but can be separate.

I just finished this diptych yesterday. It was a troublesome one and took longer than other paintings to get to a place I was happy with so I hope the time and work paid off. I started it early in the COVID19 lockdown and I just wanted to paint something large scale away from the small works I hade been doing. It turned out that I wasn’t able to get the type of canvas I wanted in large size due to stock limits and lots being sold out in the art shops, so I decided to get 2 100×50 canvases and put them together as a diptych. It’s been years since I did one and it’s an interesting way to paint and try make 2 work together. I probably should have titled it ‘social distance broken rule’ thinking of it now in a funny way 🙃

They came to a good place around the time comet SWAN was soaring through our cosmic skies hense its title. I often title paintings to mark astrological moments or events in our solar system and beyond that coincides with a piece of my art being born. So here is ‘The Solar Wind of Comet SWAN’
